A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Ford has once again designed a component doomed to fail way before it should.

The windshield wiper motor and assembly connection is a disaster. It will eventually deform to the point of just falling off.

If you need your wipers, then I suggest opening your vans hood, grabbing one of the wipers and moving it back and forth. If there is any slack at that juncture, then the connection is going to fail. If you can pull it apart, then it already has.

The entire assembly needs to be replaced ($65.00) and if the ball joint is worn, a new motor will be needed($60.00).

Hope the pics are useful.
